OCTAVE Opens SANGHA Retreat to Unite Eastern and Western Wisdom

Fred Chavalit Tsao has collaborated with his brother, renowned architect Calvin Tsao of Tsao & McKown Architects, to implement his vision of SANGHA Retreat.

Inspired by the Sanskrit word for “community”, SANGHA Retreat is a pioneer of conscious living. Well beyond conventional spa and wellness concepts, SANGHA Retreat offers a more holistic, life-centred way of being.

Situated on a serene peninsula, thirty minutes from downtown Suzhou and ninety minutes from Shanghai, SANGHA Retreat is divided into three areas across a striking 190,000 square metre estate.  ‘AT ONE’ comprises of the retreat clinic, healing spa and guest suites offering world class traditional Chinese and Western medical expertise and therapies,  ‘VILLAGE’ is the interactive learning community and event space, and ‘SANGHA VILLAS’ offers 108 private villa waterfront residences.

SANGHA Retreat is the brainchild of founder Fred Chavalit Tsao, inspired by his own inward journey of conscious awakening led him to creating a space for societal healing with the intention of fostering harmonious communities.

Octave is a curated well-being platform that fuses Eastern wisdom with Western science, to support your journey to self
clarity & well-being.

Tsao is dedicated to building on the increased connectedness between Western sciences and traditional Eastern philosophies. SANGHA invites Asian and Western guests to come together to discover, explore, create and connect to the notion of humanity, community, and deep healing.

To tie in with the international launch of SANGHA Retreat, this July, Tsao will publish his first book, Quantum Leadership: New Consciousness in Business. In this, he articulates SANGHA Retreat ethos as applied to the world of business. Its essence is to explain the power of creativity that can be reborn when people achieve self-actualisation.
